Two men are back behind bars, this time for their alleged involvement in the robbery of a female tourist and her 9-year-old daughter from South Korea.
Jeremy Allen Evaristo, 26, and Xavier Anderson Tedtaotao, 38, were arrested Wednesday night after police executed three search warrants at different residences in Dededo, in connection with the robbery investigation.
Evaristo is being held on $30,000 cash bail while Tedtaotao is being held on $25,000 cash bail.
The tourist and her daughter had stopped to take photos at the entrance of Two Lovers Point on Sunday afternoon when Evaristo and Tedtaotao pulled up in a stolen sedan. Evaristo, armed with a handgun, ordered the woman not to move and took a leather backpack from her car.
According to court documents, Evaristo had stolen a white Acura Integra from a Pay-Less Supermarket parking lot. Police reviewed surveillance footage and saw that prior to the Integra being stolen, a black Toyota 4Runner was parked next to it.
The known operator of the 4Runner is currently incarcerated at the Department of Corrections but police located the individual, who is currently on parole, who was driving the car and led them to Evaristo.
The victim’s keychain that had a picture of her 9-year-old daughter was located inside Evaristo’s bag inside the 4Runner that was searched outside an apartment complex off Salisbury Street in Dededo on Wednesday afternoon.
Evaristo confessed to the robbery and identified Tedtaotao as having been the getaway driver, court documents state.
The stolen sedan was left at the Micronesia Mall parking lot after the robbery.
Tedtaotao denied involvement and told police that his mother could provide an alibi. Court documents state Tedtaotao’s mother denied having knowledge of her son’s whereabouts last Sunday.
Tedtaotao’s latest arrest adds to his rap sheet. He was arrested in December 2011, just 44 days shy of being released from jail, after escaping from the Department of Correction’s halfway house and stealing an official DOC vehicle, Post files state.
Police located Tedtaotao driving in Harmon and attempted to conduct a traffic stop, but he refused to comply and eluded officers, eventually losing control and crashing into two parked cars in Dededo.
Evaristo also has several priors that include a drug possession charge in November 2011 and a suspended sentence for racking up nearly $10,000 in charges on stolen credit cards.
He entered into a plea agreement and admitted that he and two others, Jimmy Quintanilla and Roke M. Quintanilla, had stolen a misplaced wallet at the Micronesia Mall, Post files state.
The Quintanillas gave Evaristo methamphetamine in return for the ability to use the stolen credit cards, court documents state.
In July 2013, Evaristo was sentenced to five years behind bars with three years suspended.
